Africa's growing dependence on imported wheat


IAAE Occasional Paper, International Association of Agricultural Economists (4): 36-39
Africa's growing dependence on imported wheat
Food production in many African countries has in recent years not expanded fast enough to keep up with population growth. Diminishing self sufficiency and food security and the consequent increase in food imports of many African countries are causing great concern. Amongst all food items, wheat stands out as the one commodity whose influence in consumption seems to be growing rapidly.
